On behalf of the Westfield Democratic Committee, as Chairwoman, I welcome you to this website.

Our goal is to provide information about the Democratic Party in Westfield and our candidates for Mayor and Town Council. We believe that the people of Westfield are its greatest strength. We aim to help realize Westfielders’ hopes and aspirations for our community.

We inaugurate this website at a critical time in our history. Just a few short months ago, the appetite for political involvement seemed to be waning. Since the presidential election, the demand for political information and interest in political participation has risen dramatically. On January 21, 2017, over a 500,000 people marched in Washington D.C. and 400,000 marched in New York City. Here in Westfield, 7,000 people joined the worldwide outpouring.

A strong desire for civic engagement is clearly evident in Westfield, which is not limited to national and state affairs. Many people have reached out to the Westfield Democratic Committee to volunteer their time and support to address local issues concerning Westfield.

In 2017, our residents will have the opportunity to elect a new governor for New Jersey and a new mayor and four town council members for Westfield. The Westfield Democratic Committee is poised to put forth hardworking, forward-thinking and civic minded candidates for both mayor and for town council.

We urge you to get involved in our local campaigns. Please contact me at westfield.dems@gmail.com for information on how you can offer your support. Also, keep checking this site for upcoming events as well as articles and other information. Be sure to tell your friends about us.

Looking forward to meeting you and rolling up our sleeves together to achieve success in 2017!

Janice Siegel, Chairwoman, Westfield Democratic Committee
